They should drop the price somewhere between $10-15. It could still have a chance to hit atleast 900k+

I liked the style of the game but it was so very flawed in the gameplay department. It also lacked a soul. It was kind of bland. Hopefully the sequel will be better.

I like it. Story mode is short, but is entertaining. I have a friend who plays Online everyday since released, he is playing it right now. Online can be addicted, granted somewhat repetitive. It gets harder at GR12 but to get there prepare to sink in lots and lots of hours! I have 90+hr into it and I'm GR9. I don't regret buying it.

Lol I'm ashamed at how poor the sales in EU did, I know me and one of my mates bought copies :D

But still, really terrible.

Although I guess that's what happens when a game comes out really late, and with no advertisement whatsoever. Oh well, atleast it sold SOME, I mean, 30k sales, at £40 (It was £45 for me though D:) is still £1.2m/$1.86m, so I guess it didn't do too bad in terms of making money, since I assume they already made profits with it in JP/US anyway...

I guess it would've sold better if people didn't import too, I know a few people that imported the JP version, and some that imported the US version, although they were like 2 weeks away from each other. Maybe if they release them quicker next time, the sales will be better in EU, I hope so, since I don't want them abandoning us, it's one of my favourite games of this generation, and my favourite JRPG this generation too D:

Sad thing is our pals in EU advertised the game really well to, the UK did the most work.

Yet 200k, 77k and 14k is the result so far.

I don't understand some people, this is almost like FF12 except it has online mode, a lobby mode, town creation, HUGE knights to use in story mode, custom characters and is a 3 part story yet FF12 will have more sells then this in the end most likely.

I'm a little disappointed by the EU sales, I mean seriously, only 16k, that's low, REALLY low.

Hopefully the game will have made some profit for Level 5 though, since it's absolutely fantastic, although I haven't finished it yet, but everything has been top notch.

also, this game has more chances to get into 1M than just surpass LO..if the Eu release date goes well, then the game will most likely have average legs, plus the greatest hits version in japan, and the WKC2 boost will give this game enough copies sold to get into the 1M mark.

I'm enjoying this game a lot more than I thought I would. I've always had trouble sticking with JRPGs for more than a few hours, and given that I stopped playing Level 5's own Rogue Galaxy only 5-6 hours in out of frustration (damn jail!), I figured this would do something similar to me given the crappy reviews.

But it's not. I'm like 12 hours in and I'm enjoying it quite a lot.

I'm going to wait awhile before I really judge it, but I get the feeling GameTrailers' 7.6 review was closest to the mark, and the 6s and 4s and whatnot were stupidly low. I've played better RPGs this gen to be sure (Valkyria Chronicles and especially Demon's Souls), but this is a fun romp all the same.
